If you call me at all,
Don't tell me that I'm ordinary,
Cause I won't be passing you, please don't leave
And if you tell me you're listening to everything you read

Turn off this light and call my name
Don't talk just ride
Who wouldn't let you be all about
About me
I'm only trying to work this out

If you call me at all,
Don't tell me that I'm ordinary,
Cause I won't be passing you, please don't leave
And if you tell me you're listening to everything you read
If you call me at all...

I hear you breathing on the line
Oh baby girl I'm not your type
I leave you hurting every night
So I won't be coming back
Who wouldn't let me be all alone
Who wouldn't let me be all alone
Who wouldn't let you scream ohh into a soft pillow

I'm such an animal
And baby honestly these teeth won't let you go

Don't tell me that I'm ordinary,
Cause I won't be passing you, please don't leave
And if you tell me you're listening to everything you read
If you call me at all...

    General CommentI think this song is about a guy who is in a band, on tour, with a girlfriend back home that he is having problems with.

    "If you call me at all, don't tell me that I'm ordinary."
    To me, that means that if his girlfriend is even going to bother calling him not to tell him he is ordinary by breaking up with him.

    "Cause I won't be passing you, please don't leave."
    Means that he isn't scheduled to go anywhere near home on his tour, and for her to hold out longer before she gives up.

    "And if you tell your listening to everything you read."
    He's saying not to believe the rumors she hears about him or the band while they are on tour.

    "Turn off this light and call my name"
    She is going to bed without him.

    "Don't talk, just ride."
    Don't think about all of their problems, just ride it out until he comes home.

    "Who wouldn't let you be all about, about me"
    Someone is trying to talk her into leaving him.

    "I'm only trying to work this out"
    He's only trying to follow his dream.

    "I hear you breathing on the line
    Oh baby girl I'm not your type
    I leave you hurting every night
    So I won't be coming back"
    They are talking on the phone, and he says he's not her type because she can't handle long distance relationships. He leaves her hurting every night because he isn't there, so he says he doesn't want her to go through the pain of it anymore, so to just forget him.

    "Who wouldn't let me be all alone"
    His friends tell him that he needs to stay with her.

    "Who wouldn't let you scream ohh into a soft pillow"
    I have no idea what this means =) l0l.

    "I'm such an animal
    And baby honestly these teeth won't let you go"
    He's an animal because he knows it hurts her being with him, but he loves her too much to let her go.

    I think it's just talking about how his feelings go back and forth when he's away from her. One minute he wants her to hold on, the next he doesn't want to hurt her anymore, and then he's back to wanting her to hold on.
    I could be totally and completely off.
    This is just my view on it.

    RESIDUUM - Go to pierce the veil's myspace, and on their music player it will have the option to download it. And then just click download and it'll go directly onto your iTunes account.

    General CommentI think its about people in a relationship and the guy loves the girl and doesnt want her to leave him but he feels like he hasnt been the loyalist of people and feels that he should be "alone" hence the fact he's an "animal" but he just cant let her go.
